More Information About Work with Us

Staff Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Technicians,
Security Experts, and Remote Help Professionals

Progent wants to hire full-time, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited engineers with Microsoft MCSE credentials; Cisco accredited system engineers with CCIE certification; security professionals who have CISSP, CISM, or CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end system architecture consultants with experience in mobile solutions, wireless connectivity, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, information protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is looking for employees to work on Progent's team of desktop service specialists and off-site troubleshooting experts. Also, We are hiring talented administrators able to perform effectively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated consultants, providing attentive client care, and offering a competitive value-based pricing structure, We have been able to expand our client list rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of businesses in Northern California and throughout the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office environment, a shared information base, and a team strategy for problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a loyal client base.

If you are a network professional with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for our customers can enhance your knowledge via interaction with Progent's staff of mutually supportive, expert consultants. Our focus on providing network expertise and computer support to small and midsize companies will offer you the chance to work closely with key players and contribute significantly to the success of dynamic businesses.

Progent is looking for consultants who have verifiable certification related to their special expertise. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you must have earned your Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certificate. For Cisco consultants, show us your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Naturally, we are aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a credential can not ensure expertise is no justification for not owning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of these tests should present no challenge. The point is that if you are a professional, then clients expect certifications. Progent can promote your talents, but you need to have a baseline of certifications for us to work with. In case you stand strongly opposed to the concept of credentials, we can understand and respect your position, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Enhance Your Skills with the Best Technology and
Joining the Top Team of Network Engineers

Progent's work environment will allow you to become a better consultant by improving your technical knowledge and increasing the loyalty of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional experts for you to work with, providing a state-of-the-art system infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the highest quality of support, and by streamlining proven operational structures for finding and retaining customers.

The main factor that differentiates us from other network support firms is the quality of our consultants. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have recruited the best expertise covering a broad range of technical areas. Whether it’s Microsoft servers, Cisco switches, network security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other crucial application, we engage professionals who can help you to be effective on larger jobs by leveraging the aggregate experience of Progent's group of experts.

To ensure the productivity of our consultants, we invest significantly in making available the best technology to perform the work properly. We will exploit technology to an impressive degree and our state-of-the-art virtual office environment enables seamless connectivity, cooperation, and knowledge sharing with other Progent consultants — entirely from home-based or on-the-road offices. You don’t waste time or lose revenue with regular commutes to a conventional office building, and all travel you do for on-site customer jobs is determined by your own time table, not ours. The best benefit is that much of our support services can be performed remotely, representing 100% efficiency for income-producing hours. In practice, some Progent staff do off-site consulting exclusively.

Progent's operations are geared towards reacting rapidly and efficiently to customer needs via information sharing and cooperative problem resolution. Even though our consultants work with a high level of independence, dispatching is centralized, client problems and solutions are carefully monitored, recorded, and organized for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant availability is broadcast to facilitate group tasks and simplify problem escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We strengthen the feeling of cooperation via periodic team conferences and quarterly corporate events.

Most of our consultants are located throughout Northern California, but Progent is attracting a quickly growing group of consulting professionals from across America. Our virtual office infrastructure eliminates regional boundaries that limit the productivity of traditional company structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care plan to ensure the health and economic security of our team members and their families.

Not only do we have awesome consultants, our sales and administration groups match the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and land the 50-60 new customers we are currently engaging each month. We recently celebrated the providing of services to our 1,000th client. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to check for yourself why Progent is also a strong sales operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for success with Progent. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other position in information technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of technical challenges is what makes professional support interesting. Customers rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced implementations, puzzling or chronic issues, and difficult migrations are the basis for what we do daily. At Progent, you will not stall or be narrowly defined, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in ordinary corporate roles. You will awake every day enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead.

Along the way, you will work with some wonderful people, both by establishing close client relationships and by operating in conjunction with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused organization through and through. If you do not offer excellent people skills or like working with a varied assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good fit.

If all this sounds good to you, we invite you to contact us about our vision of the new paradigm of information technology consulting.

Enjoy Quality of Life Improvements and Professional Success with
Progent's Advanced Virtual Office Environment
